Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely

We invite you to explore the giving opportunities outlined on these pages, which introduce some of the ways you can combine philanthropy with personal financial and tax-planning strategies.

Perhaps you would like to establish a named scholarship, or support faculty research. You may be considering a gift for a new building, or hope to ensure that your unrestricted support of the Gettysburg Fund continues for future generations.

With careful planning, you can make a meaningful gift to secure the future of Gettysburg College. We encourage you to keep two important factors in mind when considering these giving methods—your financial goals and the impact you wish to have on Gettysburg students. Planned giving methods open up opportunities to have a more substantial impact than you might think possible, while providing benefits you may not have thought of in connection with charitable giving.

Did you know? With legislation passed in late 2015, your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) can also be an excellent source of outright gifts. Learn more.
